Would you live somewhere with weather cold enough to freeze your eyeballs?
Not many would – but those that live in the most northerly town on earth have to endure it.
Welcome to Alert in Nunavut, Canada, on Ellesmere Island, where the average February temperature is -33.2C and the record low is -50C.
But that’s not all the population here – which can reach over 200 - has to contend with.
There’s the isolation, too. The nearest town to Alert is 340 miles away and you cannot reach it by car – only by air or sea. Or dogsled.
And there’s a lot of gloom. It’s dark for four months of the year.
And for four months the sun doesn’t even make it above the horizon.
